The ED’s Role in Philanthropy:  How to be - or support - the BEST. BOSS. EVER.

Webinar Overview
Let’s face it. You need to raise more money for your important mission. But you can’t as easily reach your targets without the ED’s support. Your ED may know it…but maybe they don’t.  

Join Cathy Mann, MA, CFRE, as she shares key tips to demystify this pivotal role. With more than 30 years working in the charitable sector, Cathy has served in both ED and fundraising professional roles and boy, has she seen it all. 

In the session, you will learn 3 key pillars:

  • what you need your ED to focus on
  • how to support her to be effective at fundraising
  • how to help create an environment that includes mission and fundraising

And because fundraising is a team sport – you both have to know the rules! So whether you’re an ED, fundraiser or board member, you don’t want to miss out.
